Not quite. Here’s what I’m saying…
Let’s say you’ve shot an interview, a talking head, with two cameras. One is a wide shot of the subject, the other a close-up on their face. Put the wide shot (camera A) on track one (the lowest track), and the close-up (camera B) on track two (the next track up). Now, if you lock track one, and cut segments out of track two, you’ll reveal track one below it, letting you cut between the two without ever cutting what’s on track one.
Now, if you have a basketball game, and all you want to do is cut between the two angles, I’d put one angle on track one, and think of this as your “master shot”. If you put the other angle on track two, you won’t see track one, until you cut the bits you don’t want out of track two.
So if the action is happening in the clip on track one, use the scissors to cut out some of track two to reveal it. If the action is happening on track two, simply leave it layered on top of track one, no cutting necessary.
Works beautifully! This is what I was looking for. Thanks!!
